One of the worst books I've ever read. I had to read for a book club, this is the ONLY reason I finished it. The book is written from 1st person point of view, but often changes to 3rd person. No depth of the main character. Very depressing, took a week just to finish the last chapter. I found myself skipping through many paragraphs/pages. Sorry to anyone that loves it, it deffinately wasn't for me.

If you like books with lots of flowery prose that spend chapters describing how her dress flowed like a flower in the summer breeze, this is the book for you... not the book for me.
